9:02 am
comes back to the bay area. i'll have a look at temperatures for today, coming up. . new this morning, investigators are right now trying to figure out what caused a fire that gutted one building and damaged another. ktvu's allie rasmus is live in burlingame to explain why firefighters are saying the age of that first building may have allowed those flames to spread. allie? >> reporter: well, this is the building where the fire started, right behind us. this is on donnelly avenue in downtown burlingame. this building was built in the early 1900s and because it's so old, it doesn't have a sprinkler system. it actually isn't required to. the fire marshal tells me that's one of the reasons the flames spread so quickly, not just through this building, but extended across the driveway. you can see the damage to both structures. the owner of a bakery across the street from the building called to report the fire this morning just before 4:00. he took this photo right after he called 911. no one was in the building when the fire started, but the
9:03 am
business owners and firefighters were concerned about the flames spreading to homes and businesses in the area, because the fire was moving very quickly. >> really fast. really fast. it went from just a glow to 20- foot flames in less than 5 minutes. >> in this particular case it, did spread to another building, and any time we have that with unsprinklerred buildings, wood structures, and with our downtown area, we want to make sure that we protect that the business vitality in downtown burlingame is very important. >> reporter: this building looks like a single-family home, but it actually has an apartment residents on the top floor and an office on the main floor. and the building next door also has an office. there's no tenant or residents living in that building. but the apartment resident on the top floor was on vacation when this fire happened, so no one was home when the fire broke out. however, the fire did have an impact not only on the electrical system on this property, but on the electrical system on the street.
9:04 am
there are about 16 businesses in the downtown burlingame area that are without power. back out here live, you can see someone from the city of burlingame, going through and cleaning up some of the mess here. we don't have word on what the cause of this fire is. fire marshals think it started on the, in the main living room area, the main area of that first floor here, and the fire marshal says they are trying to figure out what started this fire. but at this point, he does not suspect it was intentionally set and the fire does not appear to be suspicious in nature. live in burlingame, allie rasmus, ktvu channel 2news. one man was killed following a three-vehicle crash on interstate 680 near fremont. a van stalled on the freeway between vargas and sheridan roads just before 1:00 this morning. chp says the van was then struck by a corvette. one of the people inside the corvette walked out to direct traffic, but that's when a third car, a white corolla came by, hitting and killing him. that stretch of roadway was closed for two hours overnight.
9:05 am
just about 30 minutes ago, chp reopened both directions of highway 1 in the area of montara in san mateo county. the cause for the closure was a deadly single-car crash at the tunnel at devil's slide. it happened about 3:30 this morning. milpitas police are searching for the person who stabbed and seriously injured a woman inside a hotel. it happened just before 5:30 last night at the embassy suites hotel. police say the 30-year-old woman was stabbed several times, but is expected to survive. she was found by another guest on the third floor. but police think the actual crime scene was six floors away. >> we located the crime scene in a room on the ninth floor. we found evidence of a violent disturbance. >> the woman was the only person registered to the room, but police do not believe this was a random attack. they have not released information on a possible motive. so far, no arrests have been made. a website that allows people to see exactly where surveillance cameras are in their neighborhood is now

9:07 am
foot tree crashed into one home. luckily, no one was home. >> i heard a thunk and i thought there had been an earthquake. >> i think there are a lot of weak trees, up in the hills especially. the winds were so intense. >> arborists say the wind storm is a reminder to check your own trees. if they are leaning and older, have an expert look at them to make sure they still are healthy. for neighborhoods still without power from the wind storm, it has been a long, frustrating wait for help. downed trees knocked out power to tens of thousands of customers. this morning, a pg&e spokesperson told us there are still more than 1000 customers in the north and east bay without power. last night, people living near rio vista and piedmont avenues in oakland were told power could be restored by sometime this morning. happening now, we have just received updated information about two wind-lit fires in the north bay. the largest is the mccave fire. you can see this photo from the press democrat, which shows the flames. calfire has revised the size of the fire from 2500 acres last
